Alert: Postcard Disguised as Official OCR Communication


There are reports of postcards being sent to health care organizations disguised as official Office for Civil Rights (OCR) communications, claiming to be notices of a mandatory HIPAA compliance risk assessment. The postcards have a Washington, D.C. return address and the sender uses the title “Secretary of Compliance, HIPAA Compliance Division.” The postcard is addressed to the health care organization’s HIPAA compliance officer and prompts recipients to visit a URL, call, or email to take immediate action on a HIPAA Risk Assessment.  The link directs individuals to a non-governmental website marketing consulting services. Do NOT reply to these communications or go to the web address printed on the card.


Providers can verify that a communication is from OCR by looking for the OCR address or email address on any communication that purports to be from OCR. The addresses for OCR’s headquarters and regional offices are available on the OCR website and all OCR email addresses will end in @hhs.gov. 


Questions? contact OCR via email at OCRMail@hhs.gov.

Medicaid 1135 Waiver


Medicaid 1135 Waiver Status

On 04/02/2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved, in part, the Department of Health and Social Services' (DHSS) Medicaid 1135 Waiver request. DHSS will implement approved waiver provisions on an as needed basis, and will notify providers of the effective date of each change. Until DHSS notification is issued, services provided under waiver provisions will not be covered. Because RA messages are issued weekly, and changes are occurring on a daily basis, notices will be published on the Alaska Medicaid Health Enterprise home page as approved waivers are implemented.
